No Fam Has Visited Murder Suspect

A Coeur d’Alene teenager accused of brutally murdering his father and young brother has not had many people visit him in jail. Not a single family member had visited 14-year-old Eldon Samuel III as of Wednesday. There have been eight people who have visited the murder suspect since he has been arrested. None of them are family or friends. The teenager was being kept at the Kootenai County Jail in an individual cell. The suspect was charged as an adult but has to be separated from the rest of the jail population/KREM2. More here.

Question (from KREM): Would you visit a family member in a situation like this?
